AE241 Winter Expedition Feb. 2015!

San Juans It’s a low-snowpack out there this year in the San Juans.  But not to fear, when you have shovels, some snow, and 9 AE students to build a Quinzhee (Athapaskan for ‘snow shelter’).  After some design time, piling of snow, compaction, and settling time, here are the results after we completed digging one out. And it withstood 6 students jumping on it until it collapsed!!                the pile going up digging the entrance inside b:4 the fall
